Don’t even talk to me about race as a white person if you haven’t read this yet like honestly just shut up and stop embarrassing yourself
i feel like this list needs to be read daily and meditated on by so many white liberals. if you are not working to actively undo these things on a daily basis, then you are part of the problem. you can call yourself an activist or feminist all damn day, but if you are silent on these things, then, yes, you are part of the problem.
I remember when I first found out the truth about “Somali pirates” I got chills because of how horrific the truth was and how insanely creepily well the media had twisted the situation. Every single fucking article making it seem like these “pirates” were just after money or something holding innocent people hostage and I never gave it a second thought, why would I? There was no indication that people were trying to legitimately fight off disgusting imperialism that left nuclear waste in their waters, that over 300 people have died from radiation sickness, that Europeans have been stealing Somalia’s seafood because they overfished their own waters and the indigenous fisherman are starving and so these “pirates” emerged to deal with those stealing their country’s natural resources. The truth is enough to make anyone sick to their stomachs.
This is a great article about the truth about Somali pirates, in case anyone wants a source.
